The rarest and oldest Porsche of them all will go sale in August, expecting to fetch about $20 million at auction. The 1939 Porsche Type 64 was the personal vehicle of German car designer and manufacturer Ferdinand and Ferry Porsche. It’s currently on display as part of a press preview at Sotheby’s auction house in London. This is the only surviving example of the Type 64 and was the genesis of the marque.
The auction will take place in Monterey, California during the city’s famed Car Week and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. If the Porsche Type 64 meets its $20m target it will be the second most expensive pre-Second World War vehicle ever sold, but it will have to attract a buyer willing to break the bank for it make it in to the Top 10.
